“The Right Way to Train Your Brain: How to Improve Processing Speed and Executive Function with Games and Apps” [Video Replay & Podcast #219]

In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn how brain training apps can improve executive functions with Randy Kulman, Ph.D., and James Daley.

Episode Description

Brain training apps and games are touted as transformational. But do these tools actually help children and adults with ADHD? Can they improve executive functions, processing speed, and sustained attention in real, measurable ways? Yes — with a caveat or two.

To maximize the benefits of brain training, you must first identify the most appropriate tools for each individual’s needs. This requires research and lots of comparison. Then, you must combine brain training with cutting-edge teaching approaches that bring into the real world the skills learned in games and apps.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to identify popular games, apps, and technologies to improve executive functions and processing speed
  • Three techniques for transferring brain training skills to the real world
  • How to maintain brain-trained skills that help with real-world tasks
  • Why the newest brain training tools are more likely to make a long-term impact on adults and kids with ADHD
  • How to combine strategic teaching approaches with brain-training technologies to improve executive functions, processing speed, and academic performance
